I have been searching for information on prodcuts to use to paint my metal roof on my 37 year old barn roof. I just moved into this new house. Barn roof is gambrel style, does not leak a bit. Has a slit rusty haze all over it...never been painted. I would like to paint it a green, but wondering what type of rust-neutralizing/prohibiting primer to use and what type of paint? Enamel, acrylic, epoxy, etc? I have no idea. I want it to last awhile...don't want to have to do it every couple years or so. Any help in finding information online would be appreciated. Thanks!

Dear Tom.

I am a huge fan of ceramic coatings (have used some on metal roofs).

Please check out &

You will be pleasantly surprised by the lower temps in your barn, as well as the waterproofing properties.

Let us know how it turns out.
